History[edit | edit source]
Established as an enlightened confederation of planetary governments, at the turn of the 19th to the 20th century PD Silesia was a wretched mishmash of corrupt governments, mercenaries for hire, piracy, insurrection, and trade opportunities.
Because of extensive piracy Silesia became the proving ground where the Andermani Empire and the Star Kingdom of Manticore sent their newly minted officers and crews to patrol.
In 1921 PD, the Confederacy was annexed by the Andermani Empire and the Star Kingdom of Manticore. Silesia's central government assigned its powers to Andermani and Manticoran governments, but the system governments were retained. In exchange for a non-violent regime change the Silesian leadership was amnestied for their crimes and bribed to resign. (HH12, "House of Steel")
